Additional information

Additional information Contains 0.05% Sodium Azide.

This antibody is made to rice arabinogalactan-proteins (AGPs) and it recognizes a carbohydrate epitope containing B-linked glucuronic acid. 
In competitive inhibition ELISAs antibody binding to gum arabic was inhibited (50%) by 70 mg/ml 1-O-methyl-B-D-GlcA. The binding of the antibody to AGPs can be fully inhibited by 10 mM 1-O-methyl-B-D-GlcA.
Antibody is recognizing carbohydrate epitope containing Β-linked glucuronic acid.

Background The plant cell wall surrounds the plant cell as a complex network of polysaccharides classed as: cellulose, hemicelluloses and pectic polysaccharides and glycoproteins.  Anchored to or embedded into plant cell wall are other polymers, like: lignin, suberin or cutin. Arabinogalactans can be found in plants as free glycans, or attached to rhamnogalacturonan-I or protein backbones.
